Tropical Vanilla Smoothie

I love throwing whatever I have into the blender to see what happens. This is one of the food combinations I came up for a recent smoothie. Smoothie recipes are especially tasty, and certainly more healthy, when using organic foods. Feel free to use bits of leftover fruits and vegetables in this smoothie, as I have done with the kiwi.

Ingredients

1/2 to 1 cup of coconut water

1 egg

small handful of a spinach or lettuce

1 small banana

3/4 of a peeled kiwi

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  1. Place all but the coconut water into a blender.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of coconut water.
  3. Blend until smooth, adding more coconut water if desired.
  4. Pour into tall glasses.
  5. Add a straw.
  6. Enjoy!

Tips

  • Try adding a few slices of cucumber.
  • Look for produce in-season to save money.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with a breakfast of Paleo pancakes and sausage.

Happy Days!

Shannon
